Beyond expression blest is he

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Beyond expression blest is he
Whose num'rous sins are cover'd o'er;
The humble soul, to whom the Lord
Imputes his guilty deeds no more.

2 He mourns his sinful follies past,
And keeps his heart with constant care;
His lips and life, without deceit,
Shall prove his penitence sincere.

3 The man, who hides his conscious guilt,
Shall pine beneath a secret wound;
But he, who owns and leaves his faults,
With peace and pardon shall be crown'd.

4 The Lord hath built a throne of grace,
Free to dispense his mercies there,
That sinners may approach his face,
And hope and love, as well as fear.
